The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), is a senior executive in an organization whose primary responsibility is to guard the company's information systems and information from cyber-attacks. The CISO should have a thorough knowledge of the organization's information security policies, structures, and procedures as well as the weaknesses and capabilities of the company's information technology (IT). A CISO is responsible in directing and managing the organization's security operations. This is a part of incident response and recovery.

Security is among the fastest-growing and most complicated areas of technology in the information age and a critical concern for companies across all industries. Organizations continue to face ever-growing threats to security of data and have to adapt to the changing laws and the security landscape. Data breaches and security incidents are commonplace in the current business environment. Companies are realizing the necessity of having a Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), responsible for security. A CISO is responsible for security-related decisions as well as the education of management. It is surprising that very few organizations have a designated CISO who is in charge of security within the organization. These are some of the most frequently asked questions as a security consultant who works with many organizations to discuss the value and importance of a CISO.
